First picture: Kensington Palace releases image of Royal wedding cake preparations

The first pictures of the wedding cake for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day tomorrow have been released.

Kensington Palace tweeted the photo and video tonight, declaring, "The baking of the #RoyalWedding cake is under way!"

It also listed the extraordinary amount of ingredients for the cake - 200 Amalfi lemons, 500 organic eggs from Suffolk, 20kgs of butter, 20kgs of flour,  20kgs of sugar and 10 bottles of Sandringham Elderflower Cordial.

In the video, baker Claire Ptak, flanked by a male baker, worked on the cake as she enthused: "We've been so lucky to work at Buckingham Palace to bake the cake and to ice the cakes." 

Ms Ptak explained the cake is made up of lemon sponge with an elderflower syrup drizzle on it.

"And it has an amalfil lemon curd and then it has a swiss meringue buttercream with elderflower.

"We will assemble it in-situ at Windsor Castle on Saturday morning."

Watch: US President Donald Trump takes on Laurel v Yanny challenge, his answer is not what you'd expect

US President Donald Trump and the White House are the latest to weigh in on the Laurel versus Yanny debate.

In a video posted to Twitter, the White House staff revealed whether they were hearing 'Laurel' or 'Yanny'.

Earlier this week, a short audio clip went viral and divided the internet into two camps - those who heard 'Yanny' and those who heard 'Laurel'.

In the video, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is asked for her response to reports saying she hears 'Laurel'.

"Clearly you're getting your information from CNN 'cause that's fake news. All I hear is 'Yanny'," Ms Huckabee Sanders joked.

At the end of the video, President Donald Trump says, "I hear Covfefe".
